Family Not Only Need To Consist Of Merely Those Whom We Share Blood

“Family not only need to consist of merely those whom we share blood, but also for those whom we’d give blood.”

Isn’t this a beautiful quote about family? And I think those who have gone through the adoption process – and perhaps through years of helping children process trauma from their previous lives – will say that they have given a little blood in the name of family.

P.S. I was a little dubious about whether or not Charles Dickens actually said this, but he did! My research shows that it’s a quote from his book Nicholas Nickleby.
